    Recently I was subject to a clear night and a lunar transit on the same night, but I had only 20 minutes notice of the transit taking place, so I quickly got out my old CG3 mount (CG5 in repair) and put my ED80 on top. Luckily I just had enough time and captured 6 images of the transit.

    Astrophotography is normally very calm and relaxing (when your equipment actually works), but photographing the ISS can get your heart going! 😉

    I was sitting out in the yard a few months ago with stellarium open one night looking for a target when this huge white blob came cruising through the screen.  I freaked out not knowing what it was and clicked on it and it turned out to be the ISS.  I looked up and sure enough there it was cruising across the sky.  No time to shoot it but it was a cool experience.
